When my wife was driving back home the car started stalling when she had to come to complete stop. This was very strange as this was an...

Good day, I would like to bring it to your attention the level of service I have received at the Renault Menlyn dealership. Sometime last year (2017) I noticed a sound which was coming from my car. With great concern, I took my car in at Renault Menlyn. A service advisor helped me by the name of Kavish (Not sure, if the spelling is right). I told him about the noise that was coming from the car. He then got the foreman to drive with me so they can hear the sound I was referring to....

The final straw was yesterday (04/12/2017) when I called the service Manager, Neil and reported that my car is giving me a 'OIL SERVICE' warning and 'DIM LIGHTS FAULTY' he told me to drive the car until it's due for service which is 2018, I mean...

The company did a road worthy certificate on the car I was buying on 20 November 2017 at "We buy cars" in Centurion. The other service of licensing the car was later done by Carreg company. So the balance of the money meant for licensing the car was due to me. So company representative (Deshan) did not have an issue with the refund of R1200.00; but kept on promising to do an eft and later stop responding to my Whatsup messages. Today, 0n 29 November 2017, I'm still waiting and hoping.

Just weeks after I collected the car, the breaks started making a screeching/ squeaky sound. I contacted the dealership about this problem and was told it was because the car is new. This issue persisted and the noise became worse I than went to the dealership to have the "head engineer' tell me there is nothing he can do about the sound, the...

First, they don't have a drop off service. So when you arrive there with your car that has a broken clutch they plan on taking you to work with your own broken car. Second, they rush through your service just to get more cars through. Any and all request you make just gets answered with "oh, we didn't get to it sorry" Worst Place to ever take your car!

In July I activated a service from Tracker to get better information on my vehicle. It soon (within a week or two)became annoying receiving emails and SMSs and emails every time I started and stopped / drove my vehicle. Tracker will let you activate services online but if you try to deactivate them their system does not work - but they still happily charge customers for their incompetence. Try phoning - joke - you just get cut off by their call center / system. After 32 minutes on the phone...
